Last night I stopped at the Lifeway Christian Bookstore in Hagerstown, MD (we don't have one in Winchester) to see for myself my first published writing for sale!
.
I've spent sooo much time in Christian bookstores. I can remember browsing for hours in "The Ark & the Dove" when I was just a kid. Words and Jesus have been my refuge forever.
.
So seeing a few of my words in a Christian bookstore was pretty thrilling. In a quiet way. In the kind of way that whispers "Pay attention to your desires, delights, and dreams. They're likely your life's road signs."

A few years ago, I had an anxiety attack. I didn't tell many people about it at the time -- hoping it wouldn't shatter anyone's opinion of me as having it "all together." Ah ... the allure of the facades we create.

But then, that same year, I realized that All Together was All Too Much Work. I talked to a spiritual mentor. I asked for prayers. I slowed down enough to let myself feel all my feelings. I slowed down enough to let God put both hands on the side of my face, look into my eyes, and tell me to "breathe ... just breathe."

I am learning to spot the triggers of an anxiety attack coming on. I am learning to sit still long enough to hear my Father whisper, "breathe."

Key word there? AM learning. I am. Am. This isn't over for me. The GOOD news is, I'm more honest with myself about myself. The bad news is, there's not a magic line one crosses where you get this all figured out. If I told you there was, I'd just be living another kind of "I've Got It All Together, Baby."

Where are you today, friend? Are you worn out, spiraling? God is saying it to you ... "BREATHE."

That's what this book is for me -----> Introducing: "A Moment to Breathe." I'm one of dozens of authors who have contributed to this 365-day devotional. It's releasing next month.

I'm telling you about it early, because if you pre-order a copy of the devo from Lifeway, you get the free mug. (Mug Offer only available at Lifeway stores, including online)

Also, the publishers have designed a gorgeous FREE 10-Day Sampler of the first 10 days from the book. Get the sampler by signing up at the link in my profile.

I contributed to this book -- BECAUSE I NEEDED THIS BOOK. I am guessing you need room to breathe too ... to hear the whisper of God in your soul, saying, "Girl ... Just breathe."

Who are the people in your world who make you feel great? How can you do the same for others?

Here’s what I know about God: He has not left our side. He is there, walking right beside us, weeping with us. Every single time we weep, He does too. He is the God who sees us and weeps with us. He is the God who will forever love us. .
.
.
Many, many times today I heard Emily say that God is good. All the time. That He’s a good, good Father. And then her sister, Holly, sang ever so sweetly to her a song written by Gloria and William J. Gaither called “Because He Lives.” I think you all know it. I do. I used to stand in church beside my two sisters and we all held hymnals and we would sing it right there with both sets of our grandparents on pews close by as our Mama played it on piano. But today I sat in Emily’s kitchen on a barstool and listened as Holly sat on the couch with her and sang, “Because He lives I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future and life is worth the living just because He lives.” People: We can face anything life throws at us because we have this hope. In Jesus. And even when our hearts are breaking. Even when our souls are shaken. Ohhh, we've got this hope. Even when the tears are falling. Even when the night is calling. Ohhh, we've got this hope. We are not alone. Our God is with us. .
.
.
“He is our solid rock,” she whispered as she looked at Holly and me. We nodded back. “Yes He is. Our solid rock. Our fortress. Our rescuer.”

When I think about where I'm at in life right now I feel like a minority and it has nothing to do with my outward appearance but everything to do with my station in life. I feel less than sometimes. I feel like I'm missing something, like life has moved in one direction and I moved in another. Like I can't seem to catch up and at this rate I'll never be able to. As a single woman in my mid thirties in the church I am a minority. There aren't many of us believe me I've checked! But the truth is, it doesn't matter how I "feel" it matters what I do with this unique life that the Lord has gifted me. I'm sure wherever you find yourself in life right now you feel left out in some way or another. But God made us to be unique, He made us individuals with individual lives and journeys. I have to rest in the truth of His word that tells me I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that he knew me before the foundations of the earth. That He knows my coming and going. He knows how this part of life will end and where I'll end up. Did you know He knows the same about you? We all are rare and that's exactly how God intended it.

This TBT I'm taking it back to last Oct 19th when I had the honor of speaking to a lovely group of Christians who work at the United Nations! It was something that I longed to do for years. God is Faithful! He gives us desires and then He meets them in His timing and way. Don't give up on your God-given dreams no matter how impossible they seem!

Get ready to #soar !
Blessings!

// O P E N //

// What do you think of when you see an empty chair? I used to look at an empty chair as a place of loneliness, feeling like someone (maybe even myself!) was missing out. But what if we saw empty chairs as O P P O R T U N I T Y ? As an invitation, instead of an exclusion? Instead of seeing emptiness, seeing open possibilities? What if we had eyes to see D I V I N E encounters rather than self pity? What if we saw empty chairs as a place to cultivate community instead of fostering an island of loneliness? //

// I don't know what your empty chair is in your life. Maybe it's feeling that no one reaches out to you, or you're always the last person picked for the team. Maybe you feel like no one cares enough to follow what you have to share on social media- or maybe your empty chair is (literally) an empty chair next to you at the coffee shop. Whatever your empty chair is...how will you look at it today? //

My best days start like this 💜

Do you struggle with fear and anxiety? 😨 I think if we're honest, most of us do. 🙄Read how to shrink your fear and grow your faith on the blog today! ❤ Just click the link in my bio or go to ➡ emilienoel.com ⬅ 😉

The latest episode from The Messy Table is hot off the press (and one day early due to Fall Break). 👏🏼🎉☺️ This is fantastic news because: (1) I could use a midweek pick-me-up right about now, and (2) life is JUST BETTER with Britton Bill. @brittonaubrey is wife to @isaiahbill, mama to sweet Blaine, a pastor at #lifechurch, and one of my very favorite people.

We carved out some time for her to come over—she picked up Starbucks and I reheated some chocolate chip pumpkin bread from LifeGroup the night before. We chatted about life and what she's been learning, as well as tackled some questions we're all asking ourselves: How can I go deeper in my relationships? How do I get beyond surface level and beneath the superficial? How in the world do we discern God's will in the face of tough decisions?

It's good, y'all. Reminders I need this very day! Life certainly isn't perfect, but God is always at work. So grab (or reheat) your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us.😊☕️🎧 #themessytablepodcast [link in profile]

My hubby has been traveling a lot lately. Besides missing him, one of my biggest challenges is reminding myself that the clunks I hear in the middle of the night are not my worst fears. But you know what helps? This sweetness. Hearing creaks and thumps as he stampedes his way down the stairs to chase his ball in the middle of the night reminds me that the noises I'm hearing are normal, taking away the fear that threatens to startle me. ⠀

You know what else helps? Praying a prayer of protection over my home. If you struggle with fear when the light turns to dark, I'd like to challenge you to pray this prayer over your home. ⠀

"Lord, I pray that you would put a hedge of protection around me tonight. Bind the evil one, in Jesus' name; make my home invisible to the eyes of those who want to cause harm. Holy Spirit I pray that you would stand in for me, project a bubble of protection around me, strengthen me, and remind me that I am safe when I feel too weak to fight the fears. Thank you for the blessing of rest, help me to sink into your arms knowing that you have full control even when I sleep." ⠀

Speaking these words of truth, and asking the Lord for help have done mighty wonders on nights where I feel afraid. Will you try it? Let us not underestimate the power of proclaiming the name of Jesus into the darkness.⠀ Pc: @mrsalexgood .⠀

If you think you've done it. Do it again. (thank you for the reminder @ayrenjc)

When Leora Ebersole sees the small plane crash in her Old Order Mennonite community, she has no idea it’s a foreshadowing of things to come.⠀

When the young pilot, Moses Hughes, regains consciousness, they realize his instruments were destroyed by the same power outage that killed the electricity at the community store, where Englischers are stranded with dead cell phones and cars that won’t start. In the weeks that follow, Leora, Moses, and the community will be tested as never before, requiring them to make decisions they never thought possible.⠀
